Rifamtibi is a drug that contains the active substance Rifampicin. This substance is one of the antibiotic classes indicated for treating bacterial infections, such as tuberculosis, leprosy, pneumonia-causing bacteria, influenza, meningitis, etc.
Rifamtibi 450 mg contains Rifampicin in tablet form which is good for consumption on an empty stomach / not at the same time as food. The use of this drug must follow the dosage recommended by the doctor to minimize the risk of bacterial resistance (drug-resistant bacteria).
Associated with the side effects, digestive disorders such as nausea, vomiting, bloating, abdominal discomfort, dizziness, reddish urine, skin rash, loss of appetite, flu symptoms, itching, swelling in several areas of the body, etc.
Glandular tuberculosis can be caused by infection with tuberculosis bacteria in the human lymph nodes. Often causes lumps in the sore area. To be sure, it is necessary to examine with a fine needle aspiration to distinguish this condition from other diseases that also have similar symptoms such as lymphoma or lipoma.
If your wife has the flu after taking the medicine, she should re-evaluate whether the flu is really caused by a side effect of the drug or a viral infection. Often the flu is caused by a viral infection that is easily transmitted from one patient to another. Don't worry, if the flu symptoms don't affect your wife's physical condition, stay calm and take steps to treat flu as necessary, including:
If you have a fever, give a warm compress and consume a fever reliever if needed. Get enough rest. Adjust the humidity in your room. Sleep with your head slightly raised with a pillow. Eat healthy and nutritious food. Stay active with physical activity / regular exercise. Consume more water if symptoms are not if it subsides or gets worse, do not hesitate to visit the doctor for information, consultation, examination and treatment that has been done
hurry up. That is the information that I can convey, hope it helps
